    Default Melbourne Cup and VRC carnival tips

    Please offer tips for carnival; good time of year but always better with a winner.

    I am leaning towards red cadeaux at this stage; 2nd last year; and meets Dunaden 2.5kg better than last year, although has never beaten him at three starts.

    Final acceptances are yet to be out for derby day, but when they are I will have a look and do a little write up, as for Melbourne cup in the past few years I have always used the Geelong cup as a good form line, but not sure about this year, Gatewood was pretty impressive so may have a couple of dollars on it, but really liked Americains run in the Caulfield Cup and you can't really go past Dunadens run either, with Ethiopia looking to be the Aussies best chance.

They say, '0.6.'; I said, 'One-tenth?! You're telling me I'm one-tenth higher than the average man? Re-test that! You must have caught me on a low day."

    American will be hard to beat if track slow or worse, dont think he will beat Dunaden if dry (and others).

    Geelong Cup hard to line up, as basically a 600m sprint home.

    I would like to think Aust horses have chance.

    Ethiopia probably best chance. Here are his splits from cox plate. Last 1800m onwards

    4thEthiopia (6)1:48.92 (5) 1:37.09 (2) 1:25.54 (2) 1:13.41 (2) 49.10 (1) 37.37 (2) 25.80 (2) 13.19 (4) 2:04.81

    Pretty fast pace which wrote off a few (including Green Moon who was also caught wide).

    Good mate of mine is a part owner of Zabillionaire which has a run in Melbourne Cup. Might have a few bucks on a place as it will pay pretty good odds if it can run third. He's pretty pumped about hanging out with the other owners - if he gets lucky he might score a kiss off Camilla....lol

    Still, this is a hard race to pick with such a large field. Americain looks ok but it is carrying some serious weight.

    Will probably go with Ethiopia.
    The weights in this gym just aren't heavy enough... would you mind sitting on my face while I do some crunches?

    Harry! I have cash. I need a decisive tip before handing my hard earned dollars over to the TAB! lol Can someone post the lineup for the Cup?

    It would be some feat if Zabillionaire ran a place, but you never know.

    Would prefer a kiss from Francesca any day of the week or night would not matter......

    As for America in I think he is more then capable of carrying the weight, he is a year older and looking to be an improved horse from last year when ran 4th, might come down to baried draw, but does have Ollie on board this year so that could be the difference...

    as I say, it might warrant a small bet cause it will pay a shitload for any place. But you never know, could get a lucky run and lucky draw...

    Lineup isn't final yet, it's always a very hard race to tip because the field is so large.

    Will post up my thoughts after the weekends racing.
